Section and elevation (enhanced)

You can now select objects in top-level Xrefs for editing when using the Edit Live Section command.

A new setting in the properties for the 2D Section/Elevation result will force it to refresh when opening the drawing. 

In addition, grip states have been added to the section line to enable it to be modified without having to re-create it.

Create and update 2D sections through dialog box reduction. To create a section, draw a section line.

AutoCAD MEP generates a 2D section, based on the objects that are automatically included within the boundary of the section line.

For even greater control, add and exclude additional objects.
